    I have the Galaxy Note 5 which has wireless charging. When I plug the phone into my car to use Android Auto the car's USB port only provides 500 milliamps of charging which is not enough to keep the phone charged during the use of Android Auto. Could I use a wireless charging pad in the car to increase the charging current or does the phone somehow turn off wireless charging capabilities when it senses it is receiving power through the USB port?

    You'd be connecting 2 power sources together - NEVER a good idea (one of them - the internal charger on the phone or the wireless receiver in the phone, will burn out). If it has to be connected via Bluetooth, that's your only power choice. If not, you can connect any power supply and use Bluetooth to connect to the head unit.
